Today on the Achieve Your Goals podcast, Ryan Michler is here to teach you how to become more of the man you were meant to be!

Ryan Michler is a husband, father, Iraqi Combat Veteran, and the Founder of Order of Man.

Growing up without a permanent father figure, Ryan was left to learn how to be a man on his own and with the help of a few strong men in his life.

He believes that most, if not all, of the world’s biggest problems could be solved if males everywhere learned how to be better husbands, fathers, friends, and leaders. He’s on a mission to help all men become the men they were meant to be.

  • [08:50] Ryan shares what life threatening moments in Iraq taught him about taking things more seriously. You’ll find out why the seemingly trivial choices you make could be negatively impacting your life!

  • [17:38] Jon Berghoff shares a story about playing catch with his son for the very first time and what it can teach us about prioritizing what matters the most!
  • [20:44] Are you grinding it out 24/7? Why do we all feel this constant need to be everywhere and doing everything? Ryan explains the work/life balance conundrum, the importance of setting boundaries, and putting emphasis on the areas of your life that are most important.
